Consistent Release |Micron pen |Internal Reflection |9in x 12in

In this piece, I wanted to focus on black women in particular. As black women we’re often described as “strong” and “always holding it together”. But what if we unleash the flood gates and release all that we are holding; happiness, fear, sadness, pain, regret, remorse, pint up aggression, softness, and joy? What would the affect be on ourselves and our environment.

The Judge, The Victim, The Masses Pencil, Micron Pen |Self | 14in x 17in

The inspiration for this piece came from reading “The Four Agreements”. There was a passage that spoke about the different perspectives that we live through, sometimes separately or simultaneously. I wanted to show how as individuals we feed into each role; the judge, the victim and the masses, within ourselves and as a society. I wanted each figure to be standalone, to show that each individual is capable of taking on each role.

 

 

 

 

The Intimacy of Sisterhood|Sketch Paper, Pencil, Color-Pencil, Tombow Brush P

en, Micron Pen | Sisterhood | 14in x 17in

The inspiration for this piece came from the female friendships I have formed over the years, how our relationships provide nourishment in our ever continuation of growth as individuals and the different levels of intimacy one experiences in a sisterhood.

Blending In…|Newsprint, pencil, Micron Pen | 18in x 24in

In today’s society, we’re taught to blend in and to not rock the boat. But it’s trending now to stand out and to be unique, not because one wants to be but because there’s a social pressure to do so. So are we just trying to be unique and individual to blend in or is it because that’s what we want to do?

Even in times when we are overwhelmed, there are endless opportunities and possibilities all around us, that we don’t even recognize.
